I don't really get where a lot of people are saying that Jay's performance on this album is weak...

In my opinion, this is easily Jay's best performance since American Gangster (which, admittedly, isn't say a whole lot).

This album is a solid 4/5... if you strip away all the silly expectations, it remains a VERY good hip-hop album, and nothing more.

I think that facts that it's Kanye and Jay on an album that is blinding folks of the fact that it's NOT that great.

Only song that is unbearable is Lift Off and the beat is good just everything else is garbage. I'm a 30 yr old White male and I APPROVE! Such a MUSICAL cd I understand why some don't like it. Its actually musically and has soul and feeling and the swag and ignance is untouchable I love that! Hate whatever u want but u know its a great cd!
4.5 mics???? You can't be serious! Stop the madness...

I give it a 3.5 at best.I took a road trip last night and I really got a chance to zone to it and it wasn't all that to me.There is no tracks on there that make you say "man I gotta rewind that sh*t".Otis is the best track on the album by far (which isn't saying much).Plus production was lacking too.I jus think they could've done better than that giving their track record.

For me (out of 5):

No Church in the Wild (ft. Frank Ocean) = 4.0
Lift Off (ft. Beyoncé) = 1.0
n*ggas in Paris = 2.0
Otis (ft. Otis Redding) = 4.0
Gotta Have It = 3.0
New Day = 2.5
That's My bi*ch = 4.5
Welcome to the Jungle = 3.5
Who Gon Stop Me = 2.0
murder to Excellence = 4.0
Made In America (ft. Frank Ocean) = 2.5
Why I Love You (ft. Mr Hudson) = 1.0
Illest Motherfu*ker Alive = 2.0
H*A*M = 1.5
Primetime = 3.5
The Joy (ft. Curtis Mayfield) = 3.5

Overall... It's a mixed bag for me. So, its a 3.0 or a 3.5...

No Church in the Wild (ft. Frank Ocean) = 4.5
- song is crazy. love the beat..hook is catchy...rhymes are good for the most part..great set it off track.

Lift Off (ft. Beyoncé) = 2.0
- didnt mind it at first but i cant stand it now. always hated the hook tho..beat is kinda whatever...Kanye gets mad annoying as the song progresses...@ jay's part

n*ggas in Paris = 4.5
- LOVE this song..not their best lyrical performances(esp Kanye, who almost ruins the song) but the beat is on some other sh*t and the switchup only makes it better.

Otis (ft. Otis Redding) = 4.0
- Didnt like it much as a standalone leak but in the scheme of the album i like it alot

Gotta Have It = 4.0
- catchy joint..love the beat..jay kinda k!lls it a little bit.. lol @ kanye starting off lololololol

New Day = 4.0
- i dont like this song as much as everyone else does but i like it...i feel like the beat could have been worked on a little more, especially that snare.

That's My bi*ch = 3.5
- song is cool. i like it but it wouldnt be my first choice to listen to from the album.

Welcome to the Jungle = 5.0
- usually if a song is produced by/featuring Swizz Beatz i run immediately..this song is absurd tho...this is my anthem right now..sh*t just gets me amped and Jay k!lls it...song didnt even need Kanye on it..all he did was quote 3stacks anyway.

Who Gon Stop Me = 4.5
- Kanye doesnt know what piglatin is but i love this song..sh*t goes extra hard..i told n*ggas dubstep was gonna pop up in hiphop mad soon...the switchup goes even crazier..jay k!lls that sh*t

murder to Excellence = 4.0
- song is good but i never feel like hearing it

Made In America (ft. Frank Ocean) = 2.0
- jesus, mary,, and joseph were made in america? the hook ruins the song(lyrics, not so much the delivery) and also the song is just bragging and doesnt really go with how the song is portrayed when you first hear it.

Why I Love You (ft. Mr Hudson) = 3.5
- jay k!lls this one..i just never feel like hearing those damn hihats and sped up sample

Illest Motherfu*ker Alive = 3.5
- songs cool..lol thats about it

H*A*M = 4.0
- i actually like this song..especially now. its nothing special really but i like the beat and Ye k!lls me with that "asses flat as sh*t" bar and not to mention how hilarious Jay sounds when he does the hook

Primetime = 3.5
- joint is dope, gotta bump it a few more times tho

The Joy (ft. Curtis Mayfield) = 3.5
- another old one that i havent heard enough

Yeah, I just found the song (beat, lyrics, etc.) annoying. Mr. Hudson's singing also got on my nerves. As much as "Lift Off" annoys me, this song annoys me even more.

First off I respect you for actually giving it a listen and reviewing it, so as much as it pains me to, you will be propped.

I think Jay and Kanye just ain't for you though as a whole, you continually complain about subject matter (and on murder To Excellence of all tracks), and it's obvious you have pointed out mainly Jay's so called faults (pause flow on Welcome To The Jungle ), and not even mentioned Kanye's great moments (lyrically Kanye has some of his best verses on here).

Your angle was predetermined before you wrote this and I can tell because you continuously go on about wanting Jay and Kanye to make more so called "real" songs with "meaning", which ESPECIALLY in regards to Kanye means you are hating, as Kanye has been one of hte most honest dudes in music since he came out. As for Jay being personal, Reasonable Doubt, Volume 1, The Black Album and American Gangster disagree with you.

I'm pretty sure he was referring to me and my opinion on that "Why I Love You" track...

And if he wasn't, oh well.

And, would you look at that... Name calling... Can't say I'm surprised.
